Coral Gables, Florida Speed Traps
The perimeter roads of the University of Miami are heavily enforced by UM Police, especially late nights. (And yes, it is a Real police department that issues Real tickets). They will also follow you until you break a rule and may follow you outside the university for the “take down.””
Coral Gables police walking up and down the lanes looking in cars to see if you’re wearing seatbelts.
The speed trap is where Anderson Rd. and Andalusia Ave. or others may know it as Biltmore Way. The cops hang out under a tree to get the people heading west there are at least 2 cops at one time there and they usually get 3 or 4 cars before the start to write up the ticket._
As Alhambra Boulevard winds it’s way thru the Gables, it curves to the right just before you hit the intersection (east bound at this point) of Madrid. Right past the sharp curve sits the motorcycle cops in the mornings usually looking for folks late to work in downtown Coral Gables and rushing. By the time you spot them after the curve it’s too late.
West bound Alhambra Blvd, right past the traffic light at LeJune Rd. Gables Motormen will set up a RADAR gun either on the north side of the road or more likely right behind one of the big Banyan trees in the median. Theyre looking for folks who “goose”” the throttle in jumping thru the yellow light and shoot way over the posted 30mph limit. Getting past the traffic light will boost you maybe to 40 or 45 mph for just a second. It’s enough believe me. Gables cops have ZERO mercy for speeding tickets. It’s big $$$ revenue for new cop toys.”
